WARTIME FARM SLEEVELESS PULLOVER

£6.00

In the wake of the popular Wartime Farm BBC TV series, you can now knit your very own authentic Fair Isle Sleeveless Pullover, modelled on a 1938 original and as worn by Alex Langlands no less!

This 12 page pattern contains a combination of written and charted instructions to knit this garment. It includes instructions for a wide range of sizes to fit children, men and women. Please read the pattern notes and sizing charts carefully to ensure you work the correct size.

The pullover is knitted in one piece up to the underarm and then is divided and the front and back are knitted back and forth separately. It is knitted using stranded Fair Isle technique.
